Tyee was found in a school yard in Corvallis in January 1997. He had muscle damage and punctures to the shoulder. Neither medical care nor rehabilitation were able to help him fly well enough for hunting or his long migrations. Tyee joined the Cascades Raptor Center's Education Team in August 1997.
